Pythons are a species of snakes from the boa family, but with certain characteristics that make them different. They feed on warm-blooded animals, wrapping them with their body and asphyxiating them. They tend to be harmless.
A few months ago, a python was found dead in South Africa. Its belly was swollen in an uncommon way. All the central part of its body was very swollen.
Vets were suspecting the damage was done by another animal, but they never imagined what it really was. To discover what had caused the snake’s death, the vets practised an autopsy and found something unexpected.
The python had a porcupine inside. The porcupine was 31 inches long and weighed 29 pounds. The porcupine’s spines had torn all the python’s entrails. The mammal was already dead.
It was a surprise for all to discover what was inside the python.
